Module 3 Assignment: Employee Handbook Outline
“Loyal employees are Assets – Not Liabilities!” By Richard Branson
Course Learning Objective (CLO 1):
Demonstrate an understanding of the origin and meaning of ethics as it applies to various aspects of business.
Assignment Overview and Instructions:
Using ideas from the Module 3 reading and the “Nike and Employment Discrimination” Case, choose a type of fictitious business and publish an outline listing and describing 5 important policies that should be included in a standard employee handbook for this business. In the handbook, provide the purpose of the handbook and then list, define, and describe these 5 policies including the primary employer/employee responsibilities and duties to one another. Finally, explain why the selected policies are applicable to this particular business.
You may use an existing template from the internet, but you must modify the template and the selected policies to the business that you chose. Consequently, you must describe and apply each policy to your chosen business in a specific and meaningful way which displays original work using your own words.
*While you may use a sample template you might locate on the Internet – you must rewrite any sample or template (citing your sources) using your own words. DO NOT SIMPLY CUT AND PASTE TEXT FROM THE INTERNET.
*Cite any of your sources and references for the outline in an attached reference page.
An employee handbook is a vital resource for both the employer and the employee. It provides guidance on an employer’s standards and objectives relating to various employee activities and employment-related matters. It should include a company’s policies and practices as well as an overview of the expectations of management.
It is viewed as a means of protecting against discrimination or unfair treatment claims. It should be easily accessible to all employees.
Employers should require every employee to provide an acknowledgment of having received the handbook. The acknowledgment should be saved in an employee’s personnel file as a way for the organization to establish that the employee was made aware of the policies.
Step 1: Create an outline for your business type by identifying, describing and elaborating on 5 important policies (i.e. the ethical and legal policies and procedures) to include in a well-published Employee Handbook.
The employee handbook should include a statement that summarizes each policy and procedure for the outlined topics/policies that you listed above. The statements should be easy to read—in other words, they should be understandable to employees and published accordingly.
Some important topics/policies included in an employee handbook include:
Company culture, values, mission statement
Company policies – on-boarding, dress code, code of conduct, internet/social media policy, compensation/benefits, work hours, confidentiality policies, workplace safety
Legal rights and obligations regarding the employer – employee relationship
Equal employment opportunity statement
Commitment to diversity and inclusion statement
Implementation of accommodations for those with disabilities
Anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policies
Other important factors to consider are federal and state laws that affect employees, such as:
Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) anti-discrimination laws
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
If an employer fails to communicate these in the employee handbook, it increases the potential for noncompliance with the laws.
Step 2: Attach a reference page of your sources and references (This does not count towards the page length requirement.)
Format: Please submit a 600-word minimum Word document that is double-spaced, with 12 pt. Times New Roman or Arial font, and 1-inch margins on all sides. Include a Title page and a Reference page. Title and reference pages DO NOT count towards the length of the paper. To monitor the word count, use the “Word Count” tool in the “Review Tab” of MSWord.
Submit your file in this Assignment dropbox. Cite your sources using APA format (Refer to: APA Citation Guide).
Use of References/Sources: Use primary, legitimate sources for your handbook template and research (i.e. major legal/business websites (i.e. Legal Zoom), newspapers, journals, books, etc.). Some examples are Newsweek, N.Y. Times, Washington Post, Forbes, BusinessWeek, etc. If you have any concern whether a source is legitimate then either check with the instructor, campus librarian, or do not use it. Do not use Wikipedia as a primary source.
Assignment Submission Instructions: Save your assignment as a .docx file.
Include your name in the title of the electronic file for identification purposes, for example “FirstNameLastNameMod3Assignment” and do NOT use any spaces, punctuation, or special characters in the file name.
When your file is ready, submit it for grading to the assignment dropbox.
Grading: This Assignment is worth 50 points and will be graded based on the Writing Assignment Rubric.

Assume that the euro’s spot rate will be $1.25 in one year.

Sazer Co. (a U.S. firm) is considering a project in which it produces special safety equipment. It will incur an initial outlay of $1 million for the equipment for their production line and sell the product to Spain and Portugal in Euro. The company expects to receive 550,000 Euros in one year from selling the products in Portugal where it already does much of its business. In addition, Sazer Co. also expects to receive 250,000 Euros in one year from sales to Spain. However, these cash flows are very uncertain because the company has no existing business in Spain and there might be 15% of risk of default of accounts payable by Spanish companies and therefore, there might be risk of a 15% account receivable of a US firm.
Assume that the Euro’s spot rate will be $1.25 in one year. Also, assume the value of the equipment mentioned above after one year will be $600,000. It will pursue the project only if it can satisfy its required rate of return of 24 %. It decides to hedge all the expected receivables because of business in Portugal, and none of the expected receivables because of business in Spain.
Estimate the Expected Net Present Value (NPV) of the project. Show your calculations.

Assume that decko co. expects that the chinese yuan will continue to stay stable against the dollar.

Decko Co. is a U.S. firm with a Chinese subsidiary that produces cell phones in China and sells them in Japan. This subsidiary pays its wages and its rent in Chinese Yuan (RMB), which is stable relative to the dollar. The cell phones sold to Japan are denominated in Japanese Yen (JPY). Assume that Decko Co. expects that the Chinese yuan will continue to stay stable against the dollar. The subsidiary’s main goal is to generate profit for itself and reinvest the profit. It does not plan to remit any funds to the U.S. parent company. Based on this scenario, please answer the following questions:
Suppose that the Japanese Yen strengthens against the U.S. dollar over time. How would this affect the profit earned by the Chinese subsidiary?
Assuming that there are no major country risk issues, why do you believe that Decko Co. established the subsidiary in China instead of Japan?
If the Chinese subsidiary needs to borrow money to finance its expansion and wants to reduce its exchange rate risk, should it borrow U.S. Dollars, Chinese Yuan, or Japanese Yen? You should provide a detailed explanation of your answer.
If Decko Co. had established its subsidiary in Tokyo, Japan, instead of China, would its subsidiary’s profits be more exposed or less exposed to exchange rate risk? Please provide a detailed explanation of your answer.
